Ireland’s six Walker Cup panelists have been selected to represent the GUI at The Amateur Championship, which begins at Royal St George’s and Prince’s on Monday (19 June). The same six players will represent the GUI at the European Individual Championship, which takes place at Walton Heath from 28 June to 1 July.

Colm Campbell (Warrenpoint), Robin Dawson (Tramore), Alex Gleeson (Castle) and Conor O’Rourke (Naas) complete the six-man squads. The top 64 and ties after two rounds of stroke play qualifying will advance to the match play stages at Royal St George’s.
